Most of you are familiar with the Food Pyramid, a chart to guide healthy eating (originally created in Sweden in 1972) and soon after adapted and provided by our own United States Department of Agriculture. This has always been a controversial subject, as there are so many opposing personal, political and social views which may influence it.
Given our company’s emphasis and belief in the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, it’s actually hard to image the current Pyramid having any relevancy at all. Rather than debate the obvious flaws in the traditional Food Pyramid head on, we simply created our own, inspired by the Plant-Based Lifestyle. While we recognize that individual tastes and preferences vary, the goal of this has been to promote health and wellness in our diet. Consider this as a guide more than a rule.
